    The world tells us that if we hear voices, then we are insane, yet Yeshua tells us we should expect to hear His Voice. In order to hear His Voice, we need to Know His Word intimately. We do not want to hear: "Depart from me, ye wicked, I never Knew you!"

    To Bill on John ch. 16 - there's no Jesus admonition in Matt to be born of the water and the spirit or Matt. 28:19 and Acts 2:38? These are in GOD'S Word too.
  • Lenora
    I read this as a message of hope given to us by our Lord Jesus Christ. Even though we may suffer in this life, our Lord has conquered this and offers us the comfort of hope in him. Our only peace is in our Lord Jesus the Christ, a free gift from God our Father.
